northern Nevada allergy care

Leading-Edge, Compassionate Care

When you need specialized treatment from a lung or sleep specialist, what is most important to you?

  • The highest standards of care, much like those you would find at UCSF or UC Davis?
  • A physician who gives many lectures each year about best practices, educating both new and established physicians?
  • A private practice that blends an evidence-based, academic approach with a patient-centered philosophy?

You’ve found all of these in one place: Sierra Pulmonary & Sleep Institute.

Dr. Michael Lucia opened Sierra Pulmonary & Sleep Institute (SPSI) in Sparks in 2002, recognizing an unfilled need for outpatient pulmonary, allergy and sleep medicine care in the local community. Our custom-designed, state-of-the-art facility provides comprehensive, compassionate sleep, pulmonary and allergy care for the northern Nevada community without the stress and hassle of a hospital visit.
Our private practice blends an evidence-based, academic approach with a patient-centered philosophy. With board certifications in internal medicine, critical care and sleep medicine, and additional fellowship training in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine and Sleep Medicine, Dr. Lucia brings exceptional expertise and insight in multiple related disciplines to his patients.
